Yacht builder Wider invites boaters to take a walk on their wild side with the new 18.6-metre sporty WiLder 60.
Wider Yachts has launched its newest pleasure yacht, the WiLder 60, which marries the finest Italian craftsmanship with bespoke design and the ability to hit 40 knots. Currently in build for its scheduled summer 2023 release, the new yacht has been conceived as an all-aluminium thrill machine and as a hybrid between chase boat and performance cruiser.
Wider has always prided itself on being a convention challenger. From its visionary cruiser and superyacht designs, industry-leading serial Hybrid Propulsion System and eco-conscious WiderCat offering, since its foundation the Italian brand has set out to deliver unparalleled experiences for equally visionary owners.
This summer, Wider is set to launch a new project conceived, designed by the in-house Centro Stile Wider and positioned within the WiLder, the shipyard’s alter-ego conceived to indulge the wilder side of lovers of superyachts and the sea.
Built in line with superyacht-derived processes and finished with attention to detail, the WiLder 60 combines sharp aesthetics with rigorous engineering to offer a fully customisable 40-knot platform for fun, with bespoke build options available according to individual wants and desires. This tailored superyacht approach elevates the WiLder 60 from a just-one-of-many model to a lust-for-life series of one-offs, each as unique and as special as the individuals who order them.
The design is infused with Wider creativity from stem to stern, with angular styling and signature Wider spaces. The aluminium hull ensures seaworthiness in all conditions, while the shallow 1.05-metre draft means the fun can be carried all the way to the beach.
“We all have a wild side, and the WiLder 60 is the wild side of Wider,” says Marcello Maggi, at the helm of W-Fin Sarl, the holding company that owns 100% of Wider equity. “The WiLder 60 is more than just a boat – it is a bespoke statement of intent for secret escapes or wild weekends, a celebration of life and a conduit for fun. Tailor-made and turned with artisanal excellence, it embodies the exceptional nature of superyachting and offers exceptional experiences for its owners. It represents another ground-breaking step forward by Wider, which from its foundation has always sought to challenge the status quo with sometimes radical but always forward-thinking designs and solutions.”
The arrival of the WiLder 60 marks not just a product in itself, but the launch of a new and independent brand within the Wider family with its own philosophy, its own identity and its own sense of how life on the water can be enjoyed.
